    Apparently the traxxas is a better build quality but if you want strength and quality just ust the slash motor and esc and also steering servo lol but make sure you upgrade the plastic suspension arms to aluminum and also the wheel cup setup too.. the red cat is the same as the hsp destrierep just a different name

    Go castle vs the traxxas vxl ... about the same price but castle is better because it can be fine tuned with a program card or castle link . the vxl has no link available the servo is good ,some folks complain about the plastic gears in the traxxas servo breaking ,but i own one that is 2-3 years old and i got it used that still works perfect

    Negative, dont be stating false information.

    The Blackout is not the same as the cheaply made HSP Destrier.
    Arms, chassis, electronics, wheels, everything is different.
    May look alike at first glance, like many truggies, buggies, but it is not the same sct at all.
